This is one of the pieces I have been working on lately.
It is almost finished.
I'm just waiting for the client to tell me what she would like on the plaque.
A significant date?
I'll bring it back and show you how it turns out.
This is how she began
and how she looked part way through.
A BeColorful piece to be sure.
I am a avid fan of color and pattern.
I like the unexpected.
This week on Motivated Monday there were so many great creative links for everything from carved fruit to tutus and I loved them all but there were also numerous painted furniture projects. I thought they tied in nicely with my post tonight so I decided it would be a natural fit to showcase them.
I wanted to share a few of them with you in case you missed them.
Another fan of the unedited style is my blogger bud, Mary, at
Those legs just made me so envious that I didn't think of them first. :)
Her work here is flawless
and those colors are fabuloso.
Lately, though, I have been drawn to these more subtly painted pieces.
Subtle but something other that black or white.
I thought this gray thrift find number of Lindsay's looked sophisticated and cool in its chic gray coat.
I have loved Linsday's blog for like .... ever. :O
Another take on painted furniture that I am drawn to are these bright colors on an accent piece.
Did you see this one from
Yellow is really a great neutral but can give a room that unexpected punch it has been lacking.
As a lover of adirondack chairs I thought this post was especially fun over at
Two projects - one post.
Love her colors.
Sometimes we debate if we should paint.
Carol Anne is wrestling with herself over just that issue.
She has these chairs that she inherited but needs that push of motivation.
They are pretty but she is looking for something fresh and bright.
Stop over by
and encourage her why don't you.
I will be linking this post to these few sites. Find more great creativity there.
Thank you to every body that linked up last week.
Looking forward to your most recent inspirations.
This week there were several links back to the blog's home page instead of the post.
Please remember to link back to your post.
